La res publica di Galeazzo Gualdo Priorato (1606-1678)
Storiografia, notizie, letteratura
Galeazzo Gualdo Priorato, in his youth a soldier of the king of France and the Habsburgs, from 1640 published historical works on events of his time, earning the title of Cesarean historian. The essays collected here allow us to focus on a figure that has been for a long time neglected in the studies of the Italian seventeenth century. On the contrary, the profile that here emerges is that of a prolific but learned author, with political but also literary ambitions, a courtier historian well introduced in the Europe of the great monarchies, but culturally engaged in the libertine addresses of Venetian literature of the Academy of the Incogniti.
